Has your child ever had a "severe" allergic reaction to vaccines? If yes, please explain. If no, tell us how your child typically reacts after vaccinations.
My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.

Only two rounds of vacc's (2 and 4 months) but so far he's cried for about 2 minutes each time then went on about his day with no reaction! Round 3- 6 months- is this Friday.

No severe reactions here. My older son got a little more sleepy/clingy after his vaccines from about 6 months to 18 months, but now you wouldn't be able to tell from his mood if he'd just gotten shots or not. So far no reactions with my younger son either.
I only had one reaction to a vaccine, and that was in college with the meningitis vaccine, my arm swelled up for a few hours, so nothing serious and they said that was a pretty typical reaction.

Nothing more than a low grade fever here. Connor got all those fevers, I don't think Daniel has had a single one. We have been spacing his vaccines out. I don't know if there's any correlation there, but it can't hurt.
